Example text

Put simply, we do not, as of yet, have a theory of diplomacy that can predict how it will be practiced or that can answer a number of salient questions. When will diplomacy be favoured over other forms of statecraft? Under what conditions will statesmen attempt personal diplomacy or shuttle diplomacy? When should states be expected to heavily invest in, and utilize, public diplomacy? The preceding analysis suggests some provisional answers. First, we should expect states to engage in traditional face-to-face diplomacy when there are significant questions about the intentions of the other and concerns about relationship-building abound.
